    I have a 2019 Raptor and have noticed that after the truck sits for awhile and then go to take off, either forwards or in reverse, that the back of the trucks feels like it drops down. It doesn’t happen again until it sits for awhile and sometimes it doesn’t do it at all. I’m just seeing if anyone else has experienced this before I go to the dealer. Thanks.

    Mine does that. I think it’s the live shocks doing their thing.

    Mine does it too I agree with MnFlyer, I think the Live shocks are just readjusting.

    Mine does it as well. It’s ever so slight but it is noticeable. I talk to my friend in service at Ford and it is the live shock adjust. It’s working correctly.

    I notice the other day after we got out of the truck, after a few minutes all kinds of mechanical gyrations coming from the truck. I could swear I saw the truck “adjust” its stance. This was about 10 minutes after shut down.

    I haven't noticed it on mine, but my Polaris RZR adjusts when I turn on the key. I think that is what the live shocks do.

    My 2019 SCREW does the exact same thing. Normally after an extended stop, often with passengers in the back seats, and when shifting from park to reverse and rolling back about a foot. Seems to 'squat' about an inch or two. But the truck rides level and smooth. I think it actually recovers that inch or two as I roll forward, not sure, but the truck "looks" and feels normal in Drive moving forward after the event. I don't worry about it anymore.

    I had the same thing and am glad I now know what it is.

    My 19 screw has always done it every morning.

    Thanks for all of the replies. I figured it was something with the suspension, just wanted to get feedback from other owners before asking the dealer about.
